    Hi, so I guess you provided illegal (negative) actual void ratio 🙂
    Hypoplasticity is porosity-dependent model and proper initialisation of state variables is needed, either through sdvini, or through the initialisation implemented directly in umat routine (this is not available in all umats, depends on what umat you use). For example, in sand hypoplasticity umat

    you can initialise void ratio using parameter 16, so sdvini routine is not needed, see

    Thanks got it……..I am using ABAQUS….Is any documentation is available for ABAQUS………I have checked for plaxis well documented manual is there…..Is it possible check pore water pressure and damping during earthquake (forABAQUS)………Currently I am using UMAT the one available in the link https://soilmodels.com/download/plaxis-umat-hypoplas-tar-gz/ (for abaqus i am using only umat file)

    Thank you very much……what is the unit of input and output state variable parameter……….can the model be used for liquefaction assessment …….. any limitation i am thinking of using it……….

    in page no 6 of documentation it is written as state variable 8 is not used

      Hi, yes, I know it is written, but I kept it for internal purposes, it is used. I will correct it in documentation later on. As for liquefaction, in principle you can use it, but this will be up to you, to calibrate the model using your data and assess predictive capabilities. As for state variables, there are either no units or kPa, but this will also be up to you to go through documentation… Hope the model helps, regards David
